You may not know that tucked in some corners of the city, Hong Kong has some nice parks for visit. Nope. They are not the widely publicized Hong Kong Park or Victoria Park on Hong Kong Island. I mean parks like Lai Chi Kok Park in kowloon.
Lai Chi Kok Park, compared to other parks in Hong Kong, is surprisingly huge. Dotted with pavilions, pools, bonsais, trees and flowers, rock formations and bridges in the style of classical Chinese garden, the park is charming. There are also children facilities and health facilities, such as paths of pointed pebbles where you are asked to take off your shoes to walk on for stimulating your blood circulation.
When I was there a week ago, the spring flowers were in their full bloom. The park was a joy to walk around.
How to get there:
Mei Foo MTR Station of the Tsuen Wan Line (Red Line), exit D.
